Bulbs are starting to be seen and the winter flowering honeysuckle is already putting out buds, which is a little unusual, but I think that is down to the weather patterns this year.

#Printinktober 2022 - week four
'Pretty' was all these pastels and a stamp set from Altenew called Nature Snippets.
'On Black' gave me the chance to use a newish stamp from Indigoblu - William Morris Willow, which was heat embossed with white.
I will post an update once the book is finished and bound.

Wanderlust 2022 - weeks thirty-six to forty-two - Inks
Much more to my liking was this layered page, using spray inks, stamps, stencils and a magazine focal image. I like the feeling of movement with the leaves and the woman's hair. This also included a useful lesson on colour theory, so that we wouldn't make 'muddy' colours (unless we wanted to use neutrals, of course).
The last in the inks section was using alcohol inks and stencils. I used Yupo paper (synthetic paper which doesn't absorb the ink) for the image on the left and glossy card for the one on the right. I wasn't happy with the tissue paper image on the right as the tissue paper didn't fade into the image as it should have done. Possibly this was to do with the alcohol background. So, I had another go...
The last theme for this year is Paper and Fabrics, which should be good.
